Easy Taxi: Celebrating its First Year Anniversary

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Easy Taxi is celebrating its first year of operations in the Philippines, and what better way to celebrate it but with their beloved taxi operators, drivers, partners, friends, and members of the media.

At their first year anniversary celebration held at the Luxent Hotel located in Timog Avenue Quezon City, Easy Taxi presented its company performance review that strongly established their presence in the Philippines as still the number one taxi booking app in the country. It also honored their top drivers like Policarpio Isla and Jiomedez Castilla who had an opportunity to talk on stage. The top taxi fleets were also awarded that day.

Regional Managing Director Mario Berta emphasized that they are the biggest in the world and is very successful in the country. They are constantly growing that they nearly open in one country every other month. They want to deliver a seamless experience everywhere in the world that you can use their app everywhere you go, including other countries like Singapore, Korea, Thailand, Myanmar, Kazakhstan, Papua New Guinea, and all the other countries possible. They have even received a $40 M funding recently, added to the previous $25 M and $10 M, making a total of $75 M of funding.

Partnering with mall operator Megaworld, they will soon have three dedicated Easy Taxi locations at Lucky Chinatown Mall, Venice Piazza and Eastwood.

They are currently operating in Manila and Cebu, and soon in Davao. Eventhough there are several requests to have their service at places like Pampanga, Cagayan De Oro and other destinations, it's a little bit difficult right now for them. But maybe soon when the demand for their service really grows in a stunning size, they'll give in to the request of the commuters.

They also have new products like the Easy Taxi Corporate where they will be selling to the major corporations in the country which is a great opportunity for the drivers who will soon have corporate accounts. Corporations as long as you can guarantee safety for their employees are very happy to pay you premium. There might also be bonus tips along the way if you really satisfied the customers. Thus, the drivers will make more money per ride.

There is also Easy Taxi Concierge at selected establishments where they would have their own employees booking taxis for the guests to deliver the best customer experience ever. This is essential for those passengers who are not familiar or hesitant in using the Easy Taxi app in booking taxis.

Incidentally, we had an amazing opportunity to ride an Easy Taxi cab immediately after the event on our way to our next event located at Resorts World Manila.

Easy Taxi picked us up from the Luxent Hotel and delivered us to Resorts World in just around 30 minutes. Wow! That was, I think, a super fast journey. We were fortunate that there was no traffic jam at around 2 pm, and made our way safely to Resorts World thanks to the driver of Gryffindor taxi with license plate number UWM 431. The taxi driver is Saplad Yaris. We got the information from the Easy Taxi operator who was also calling and checking on us via mobile phone. She was sending us all the details through our mobile phones like the license plate, name and even the mobile number of driver.

Also, beginning August 4 until September 4, Easy Taxi will be implementing a Zero Booking Fee promo. This means we only need to pay the metered bill which means a lot of savings per ride.

Founded by Rocket Internet in 2014, the APIG's mission is to promote innovation and entrepreneurship throughout Asia and the Pacific and to support the development of a vibrant online culture.

Easy Taxi
's mission since day one is to revolutionize the country's transportation system. No more manually hailing taxi cabs for everyone. Easy Taxi wants to modernize the way we commuters get their rides using the most convenient way possible just like in other countries that are already maximizing the use of the app.

Congratulations to Easy Taxi for a great year in the country, and since they have plenty of "oxygen" to run their operations, there will be no surprise if they remain to be the top taxi booking app in the country, and even the world. I am excited about the other promising plans to improve their services as they partner with more companies in order to deliver their promise for the best customer experience.

Watch out for further announcements as there are really more fascinating news coming our way thanks to Easy Taxi.
